HI AM USING MY iMAC,3.2GHZ,i5,OS X 10.8.5. CURRENTLY USING MY CUBASE 7.5 WITH APOGEE DUET. PLAN TO INVEST IN A NEW SOUND CARD… NEED HELP IN DECIDING BETWEEN “UAD APOLLO TWIN DUO” & “RME FIREFACE UCX”.
RMEs have good stable low-latency drivers. Don’t know about the UADs.
If you plan on using UAD plugins then the Apollo might be interesting as it has an integrated DSP chip for those. If you don’t use UAD plugins I would go with the RME.
